"Top Gear" and Project Sipster, BBC America


"Top Gear" and Project Sipster, BBC America
Our friends over at BBC America's "Top Gear" have really done it - they have achieved unprecedented success with "Project Sipster": the creation of a car that gets 84mpg , goes from 0-60mph in 7 seconds, and whose cost was to be $7000 or less. You can see more in this video. Suck it Tesla and watch "Top Gear" on BBC America tonight at 8pm.From Renewaland: Not so much a renewal as a resurrection. ABC is bringing back the show "Cupid" after it shut down production after 14 episodes in 1999. The show was a vehicle for Jeremy Piven in his first starring role on TV, the new version stars Bobby Cannavale as Trevor Pierce, who believes he's the Roman god of love who must bring 100 couples together before he can return to Mount Olympus. Between this and the Americanization of programs for the BBC, is this just more proof that the networks can't come up with anything original?
